Update 2/25 8:00 a.m. PT: Fare Thee Well co-producer Peter Shapiro’s has confirmed the shows will feature 360 degree seating. Seats behind the stage will indeed be up for sale during the Ticketmaster on-sale this Saturday morning.

As we approach Saturday’s on-sale date for Fare Thee Well Celebrating 50 Years Of Grateful Dead, a new seating chart for the event has been posted on Ticketmaster. From the looks of the new chart, it appears the seats behind the stage will now be available and portions of the floor have been converted from seats to general admission.

Fare Thee Well co-producer Peter Shapiro mentioned a change to the seating during a recent chat with Rolling Stone when he said that “he and co-producers Madison House Presents are ‘looking at going 360’ — opening up the seating behind the stage — and ‘going general admission’ on the field ‘to accommodate more people and have more of a vibe.'”

The potential of more fans being able to attend the shows is welcome news after GDTS issued an update stating chances of receiving a ticket from the mail order company “are 1 in 10.” Bear in mind there’s been no official word from event producers about the changes to seating for Fare Thee Well and we’ve seen Ticketmaster make changes to event listings many times, so don’t get your hopes too high before we hear from organizers and the band. (UPDATE: As noted above, the changes have been confirmed by one of Shapiro’s publications)

Tickets to see Bob Weir, Trey Anastasio, Phil Lesh, Bruce Hornsby, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann & Jeff Chimenti celebrate 50 years of Dead go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster.
